This article focuses on the interaction between the basal ganglia (BG) and prefrontal cortex (PFC). The BG are a group of nuclei at the base of the forebrain that are highly connected with cortex. A century of research suggests that the role of the BG is not exclusively motor, and that the BG also play an important role in learning and memory. In this review article, we argue that one important role of the BG is to train connections between posterior cortical areas and frontal cortical regions… Expand
On the Role of Cortex-Basal Ganglia Interactions for Category Learning: A Neurocomputational Approach
TLDR
A novel neurocomputational model of category learning that particularly addresses the BG–PFC interplay proposes that the BG bias PFC activity by removing the inhibition of cortico–thalamo–cortical loop and thereby provide a teaching signal to guide the acquisition of category representations in the corticocortical associations to the PFC. Expand
A Computational Model of Dual Competition between the Basal Ganglia and the Cortex
TLDR
It is shown how this dual competition endows the model with two regimes, one driven by reinforcement learning and the other by Hebbian learning, which results in the ability of BG to make a cognitive decision followed by a motor one. Expand
Dual Competition between the Basal Ganglia and the Cortex: from Action-Outcome to Stimulus-Response
TLDR
This work proposes a model of the interaction between the cortex, the basal ganglia and the thalamus based on a dual competition and shows how this dual competition endows the model with two regimes, one oriented towards action-outcome and is driven by reinforcement learning, the other is oriented towards stimulus-response and isdriven by Hebbian learning. Expand
Differential contributions of the globus pallidus and ventral thalamus to stimulus–response learning in humans
TLDR
Postoperatively recorded local field potentials from patients that had undergone surgery for deep brain stimulation to treat severe movement disorders predicted that the striatum, but also the globus pallidus, contributes to the learning of stimulus-response associations based on rewards and that the stable execution involves further learning in the thalamus. Expand
Dissociable changes in functional network topology underlie early category learning and development of automaticity
TLDR
This work explores how changes in the connectivity of small brain regions can predict behavioral changes during training in a visual categorization task and synthesizes the dissociative roles of multimodal association areas and subcortical structures in the development of automaticity during category learning. Expand
Recurrent inhibition in striatum enables transfer of time-flexible skills to basal ganglia
TLDR
A model of the striatum, the major input structure of the basal ganglia, in which recurrently connected inhibitory neurons receive cortical input is developed, which allows the model to learn a sparse, sequential pattern of neural activity similar to the patterns observed in experimental population recordings. Expand
A global framework for a systemic view of brain modeling
TLDR
A biologically informed view of pavlovian and instrumental conditioning can be very precious to revisit classical Reinforcement Learning and provide a basis to ensure really autonomous learning. Expand
A natural history of skills
TLDR
The function of the CBG loop is revalue in light of the current experimental evidence concerning the anatomy and physiology of the basal ganglia‐cortical circuits in vertebrates and the hypothesis that the development of automatized skills relies on the BG teaching cortical circuits is laid out.

Temporal–prefrontal cortical network for discrimination of valuable objects in long-term memory
Significance Animals, including humans, are surrounded by many objects, only some of which are valuable. To survive, it is critical to efficiently discriminate valuable objects, particularly thoseExpand
Cortical Power-Density Changes of Different Frequency Bands in Visually Guided Associative Learning: A Human EEG-Study
TLDR
The computer-based Rutgers Acquired Equivalence test (RAET) is concluded that the initial acquisition of the image pairs requires strong cortical involvement, but once the pairs have been learned, neither retrieval nor generalization requires strong cortex contribution. Expand

The frontal cortex-basal ganglia system in primates.
TLDR
This work outlines a possible mechanism for the basal ganglia's proposed role in rule potentiation, one that involves both the direct and indirect striatal output pathways and their dopaminergic input, and proposes that this recurrent activity potentiates a rule associated with those modules. Expand
Cortical and basal ganglia contributions to habit learning and automaticity
TLDR
Evidence supports the view that subcortical structures, such as the striatum, make significant contributions to initial learning and indicates that automatic behaviors are striatum- and dopamine-independent, and might be mediated entirely within cortex. Expand
The Basal Ganglia
TLDR
This chapter is biased toward the view that there is maintenance of functional parallel circuits in the organization of the basal ganglia, but that the circuit contains neuroanatomical features that provide for considerable interaction between adjacent circuits. Expand
Different time courses of learning-related activity in the prefrontal cortex and striatum
TLDR
During associative learning in monkeys, neural activity in these areas changes at different rates: the striatum showed rapid, almost bistable, changes compared with a slower trend in the prefrontal cortex that was more in accordance with slow improvements in behavioural performance. Expand

TLDR
The basal ganglia and frontal cortex operate together to execute goal directed behaviors, and action decision-making processes are influenced by motivation and cognitive inputs, allowing the animal to respond appropriate to environmental cues. Expand
Interactions between frontal cortex and basal ganglia in working memory: A computational model

In this model, the frontal cortex exhibits robust active maintenance, whereas the basal ganglia contribute a selective, dynamic gating function that enables frontal memory representations to be rapidly updated in a task-relevant manner. Expand
Category learning in the brain.

The ability to group items and events into functional categories is a fundamental characteristic of sophisticated thought and plasticity in neural systems, including neocortical regions, the medial temporal lobe, the basal ganglia, and midbrain dopaminergic systems interact during category learning.

A computational model of WM, called FROST, is proposed in which the representation of items and spatial positions is encoded in the lateral prefrontal cortex, and successfully accounts for a wide variety of WM data, including single-cell recording data and human behavioral data. Expand
